Barack Obama is undoubtedly in full panic mode as the Senate Intelligence Committee is about to question his top administration intelligence officials behind closed doors today on their explosive claims that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to boost then-candidate Donald Trump.
Fox News reported that the committee invited former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan, former National Security Agenda Director Michael Rogers (who retired earlier this year) and former FBI Director James Comey. However, Comey’s attorney said that the former FBI head will be skipping the meeting due to a “previously scheduled engagement.”
The committee is led by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., who have both been leading the probe into Russian meddling and coordination with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election. They hope to wrap up their investigation by the end of the summer.
“This gives staff the month of August in all likelihood to wrap up our investigation and for staff to work intensely while we’re out of here and not getting in their hair,” Burr said last week, referring to Senate members being on summer recess.
Trump has always denied that his campaign colluded with Russia during the election period, calling the investigation a “Witch Hunt.” The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence led it’s own investigation into these claims, finding in a 250-page report that there was “no evidence” that the Trump campaign “colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.” Democrats promised that they would be continuing with their own investigation.
This comes almost exactly one year after appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Frankly, we’re sick of this witch hunt into Trump and we hope this ridiculous investigation will come to an end swiftly. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
